  • John Holdren: Obama's Biggest Radical

    02/27/2009 7:38:26 AM PST · by · 5 replies · 1,744+ views ^ | February 27, 2009 | Ben Johnson
    When Barack Obama nominated John P. Holdren as his Science Adviser last December 20, the president-elect stated "promoting science isn’t just about providing resources" but "ensuring that facts and evidence are never twisted or obscured by politics or ideology." In nominating John Holdren, his words could scarcely have taken a more Orwellian ring. Some critics have noted Holdren's penchant for making apocalyptic predictions that never come to pass, and categorizing all criticism of his alarmist views as not only wrong but dangerous. What none has yet noted is that Holdren is a globalist who has endorsed "surrender of sovereignty" to...

    Even before Israel launched attacks on Gaza last week, Barack Obama’s incoming national security team understood that the consuming demands of crises could all too easily eclipse the transformational agenda on foreign affairs that Mr. Obama advanced during the campaign. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, instability in Pakistan and the threat of nuclear proliferation in Iran would have been more than enough to crowd out any thought of long-range planning. Now the Middle East is in flames again. And yet a wide range of foreign policy experts are urging the new president to look beyond the smoke and the...

    Here's your change! By Henry Lamb web posted December 15, 2008 For more than 20 years, the politically-correct liberal elitists have ridiculed the "black helicopter crowd" whenever the words "world government" were uttered. Global governance, however, is a perfectly acceptable term which the U.N. says is somehow different from world government. According to the U.N., "Governance is not government – it is the framework of rules, institutions, and practices that set limits on the behavior of individuals, organizations and companies." (UNDP Human Development Report, 1999, page 34). Any institution that has the power to issue rules and that limits the...

    I have written many times regarding the fakery that is the United Nations. They are a front group for corruption, greed and power. Here is a great video illustrating the hypocrisy that goes on at the United Nation Interfaith Dialogues. The entire world should know about these criminals and those who would tell Americans that we should support the U.N. and its policies of world government and peace. Unfortunately, Obama is one of those people. Tell your friends, folks. They will have been warned.

    The U.N.'s own observations show no warming trend, but things may still get hot and bothered in Poznan. Ten thousand people from 86 countries have descended upon Poznan, Poland, for yet another United Nations meeting on climate change. It’s the annual confab of the nations that signed the original United Nations climate treaty in Rio in 1992. That instrument gave rise to the infamous 1996 Kyoto Protocol on global warming, easily the greatest failure in the history of environmental diplomacy. Al Gore himself descends on Wednesday to personally bless the conclave’s work product — which, based on past history, we...

    The bill is the “Global Poverty Act” (S.2433) and is not just a compassionate bit of fluff that Obama dreamed up to help the poor of the world. This bill is directly tied to the United Nations and serves as little more than a shakedown of American taxpayers in a massive wealth redistribution scheme. In fact, if passed, The Global Poverty Act will provide the United Nations with 0.7% of the United States gross national product. Estimates are that it will add up to at least $845 billion of taxpayer money for welfare to third world countries, in addition to...

    There is a point at which one’s contempt for the environmentalists and their allies is irredeemable. There is no longer the usual excuse that’s there’s room for argument or discussion regarding global warming. Having been labeled “deniers” for years, the sense that the end of this hoax is in sight brings no desire to forgive and forget. Recently, Dr. Roy Spencer, an atmospheric scientist who formerly worked for NASA, testified before a Senate committee. Free now to speak without the impediments of bureaucratic oversight, Dr. Spencer told the committee, “I am pleased to deliver good news from the front lines...

    Countries that act unilaterally on the world stage undermine the authority of the United Nations and weaken the broad consensus needed to confront global problems, Pope Benedict said on Friday. In a major speech to the U.N. General Assembly, the pope also said that the international community sometimes had to intervene when a country could not protect its own people from "grave and sustained violations of human rights." The pope, who arrived from Washington on the second leg of a U.S. trip, became only the third pontiff in history to address the General Assembly. Speaking in French and English from...

Pastor, admits that, in one key respect, it has been a colossal failure. Pastor, a Democrat who runs the Center for North American Studies at American University, says that NAFTA has resulted in economic integration and increased trade but has “fueled immigration by encouraging foreign investment near the U.S.-Mexican border, which in turn serves as a magnet for workers in central...

Gail Collins declared in a November 3 column in the Times that the measure simply clarifies "rules for navigation and mining in international waters" and sets up "a system for settling disputes." Those opposed to it, she says, are spinning "conspiracy theories." But Collins is doing the spinning. What if there were evidence that the treaty was the...

"The document before the OAS this week mentions sexual orientation 15 times," according to Thomas Jacobson, Focus on the Family Action's representative to the United Nations. "In addition, it contains terms like 'hate crimes' and veiled pro-abortion language." He said the nation behind the proposed language -- Brazil -- first tried to get the U.N. to go along in 2003. "They failed in that attempt," Jacobson said. "They pushed again in 2004, and...

    TUNIS, Tunisia — A U.N. technology summit opened Wednesday after an 11th-hour agreement that leaves the United States with ultimate oversight of the main computers that direct the Internet's flow of information, commerce and dissent. A lingering and vocal struggle over the Internet's plumbing and its addressing system has overshadowed the summit's original intent: to address ways to expand communications technologies to poorer parts of the world. Negotiators from more than 100 countries agreed late Tuesday to leave the United States in charge, through a quasi-independent body called the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN.

    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Vicente Fox called recent U.S. measures to stem illegal immigration a step back for bilateral relations on Friday and said Mexican migrants do jobs "that not even blacks want to do." In comments likely to raise the temperature of the immigration debate, Fox defended the role of undocumented Mexican workers in the United States to a group of Texas business people meeting in Mexico. "There is no doubt that Mexicans, filled with dignity, willingness and ability to work are doing jobs that not even blacks want to do there in the United States," he...

    Socialist was behind U.N. sea treaty Elisabeth Mann Borgese One of the main authors of the U.N.'s Law of the Sea Treaty, or LOST, not only admired Karl Marx but was an ardent advocate of the Marxist-oriented New International Economic Order, according to a new report. Supporters of LOST – now before the U.S. Senate and backed by the Bush Administration – depict it as a pact that merely guarantees freedom of navigation on the high seas. But a new report issued by Cliff Kincaid of the public policy group America's Survival Inc. identifies Elisabeth Mann Borgese, a socialist who...

    ...the World Health Organization's tobacco control treaty comes into force on Sunday. It is regarded as smoking's answer to the Kyoto agreement - only with teeth. Ratified by 57 countries, including the UK, the document sets out a programme to reduce the number of people smoking across the world. Under its terms governments have promised to introduce smoking bans, tobacco advertising restrictions and health warnings on cigarette packets, draw up anti-smuggling strategies and agree to increase tax on tobacco sales. More than 100 other countries have also signed the treaty, but will not be bound by its restrictions until they...

    Besides driving whole industries and millions of jobs offshore, U.S. trade agreements are threatening our national independence and freedom. The Jolly Green Giant has been a landmark around Dayton, Washington, for generations. But he does not seem so jolly these days. In fact, the fading outline of the 300-foot tall brand name icon is barely visible now on the hillside above town. This June, Dayton’s asparagus cannery, the world’s largest, will see its last season. Seneca Foods, which cans about half of the state’s $30 million asparagus crop for General Mills’ Green Giant label, is closing the Dayton plant and...

    The Bush administration continues to support Senate ratification of the UN's Convention on the Law of the Sea, which would turn the oceans and their incomprehensible riches over to the world body. During confirmation hearings before the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, Secretary of State nominee Condoleezza Rice reaffirmed the Bush administration’s plans to seek ratification of the UN’s Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOST). During an exchange with Rice, Senator Richard Lugar (R-Ind.), a noted Republican internationalist, quizzed the nominee about earlier statements she had made in support of ratifying LOST. "In your answers to questions for the...

CAFTA, an ambitious trade pact with six Latin American nations, is shaping up as the most contentious trade measure on Capitol Hill since President Bush won trade promotion authority in summer 2002 by a single vote. It is considered a...

    GIs Can Be Ordered To Wear U.N. Beret BY JOSH GERSTEIN - Staff Reporter of the Sun December 24, 2004 URL: A federal judge in Washington has upheld the right of the American military to place its personnel under United Nations command and force those soldiers to wear insignia designed by the world body. The ruling from Judge Paul Friedman came in the case of a former Army specialist, Michael New, who resisted orders that he serve in a U.N. peacekeeping mission in Macedonia nearly a decade ago. He also refused, during unit muster in 1995, to wear the...

    Ever since I was a student in the early 1950s, I have been told that world government is a dream of starry-eyed idealists. But a form of world government is coming into being, although not the one that Immanuel Kant, Bertrand Russell or the United World Federalists envisioned. It is not the vast web of rules and norms embodied by the United Nations and the European Union. It is not based on shared ideology, race or religion. And it is not a byproduct of the Wilsonian daydream of a world rapidly democratized by the application of American power. It is...

    The United Nations is closer to extinction than at any time in its history. Finally, the people of the United States and around the world are calling for an end to this institution. Mired in scandal and controversy, Kofi Annan's last hope of salvaging the failing institution is the latest "reform" recommendations produced by his blue-ribbon committee. The two critical recommendations would expand the Security Council from 15 to 24 members and would designate the Security Council as the sole authority to legitimize "pre-emptive" military action. These recommendations, if implemented, would sink the institution further into the quicksand that has...

    Copyright 2004 The Deseret News Publishing Co. Deseret Morning News (Salt Lake City) November 1, 2004 Monday Beware of growing U.N. I am concerned about the lot of my fellow Americans -- especially my fellow Utahns -- as I watch with fear and trepidation the ever-steady growth of the United Nations and the seemingly unlimited support it is receiving from our government. Are we not aware that this World Government was brought into existence by devoted members of the Socialist establishment immediately after World War II? The United Nations, the world's "greatest hope for peace," has conned the people of...
